Dammittt. Phil! Why did you just say so. That worked. |
Not being able to move around the start up screen, I was stuck with the screen saying I had to buy the pro license or something else. My 30 day trial was up.
I will see if things work OK...tomorrow.
Thanks all for the suggestions and advice.

|PhilBa||Hey Mike, have you tried just hitting enter when the SS comes up? I just tried and it went to the program.|

I tried the suggestion that Phil posted above - worked for me. The splash screen does not come up when I run Sketchup - goes right into the work window. I'm on Windows 10 so my "resource" listing was somewhat different but since you're on Win7 you should see what's displayed in the video.
If you watch that video, it may seem like a lot of steps, but that's because the author is typing the instructions in a notepad window, then running the app, while switching back and forth between notepad and the program.
I followed the steps in the video, but I paused the video as I was performing each of the actions.

Have you tried double-clicking the blue bar at the top of the SU window to see if that reduces/enlarges/fills the screen?
OR try this:
before starting the program, right-click the program's shortcut icon on your desktop
in the "run" line, select maximized
click "OK" to close the properties window, then try running the program

Pretty screwy Mike. I think that's the update to 2016 that came out a few weeks ago. I've been running Ver 16.0.19912 (free version) without problems since Aug. Sure glad I didn't install the update when I saw it . . . just had a bad feeling that it was going to be a problem. |
I just checked with my install. If I open to the splash screen, then hit enter it will launch make. No need to click a button.

I have my graphics card set to it's maximum resolution but it still doesn't help.

I don't know if this will work with SU 2016, but .....
Using Windows 7, I right-clicked on the frame around a running program (Windows Explorer) and got a menu with several options including "Size", which I selected. Then I was able to drag the edges of the screen around. There was also a "Move" option which allowed me to reposition the window so that it was partly off the screen (hiding some buttons), then move it back into the centre. There was also a "Close" option (shortcut Alt+F4).
As stated earlier, I don't know if it will work with SU 2016, but I would try clicking just to the right of "Welcome to Sketchup" (top left) and going from there.
"Your mileage may vary."

|MT Stringer||Whew! I will have to try it after I have had time to eat my supper! And watch the video two or three times.|
